Product Description

During the '70s, Fender developed the Jazz Bass by changing its visual style and inspiring bassists to try new techniques. One of the new techniques, slapping, let directly to a new creative form of expression for the professional bassists. Its smooth feel and growly midrange, tempered with a bit of treble bite, made it a hero in recording sessions around the globe. The American Original '70s Jazz Bass updates the smooth playing feel with a modern-radius fingerboard, while retaining the classic Fender tone and style that made the Jazz Bass the tool of choice for creative bassists.

The Pure Vintage '75 Jazz Bass single-coil pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 5 magnets. The sleek 70s U-shaped neck profile and 9.5"-radius fingerboard combine for a comfortably agile playing feel. Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware-including a four-saddle vintage-style bridge-vintage-style hardshell case.

An authentic recreation of the instrument that created funk and disco, the American Original '70s Jazz Bass is the best way to get inspired and groove.

Very Nice Recreation but a Little Overpriced

What is your opinion of this product?
There’s really not much to say. The 1970’s changed the Fender Jazz Bass forever. This is an almost exact replica of the Bass that started the “Slap Bass” revolution. Everything on this bass is period perfect with the exception of one upgrade and that is that Fender listened to the cry’s of their customers from the 70’s and mounted the neck on this one with four screws as opposed to the three hole neck mount of the 70’s which actually caused the neck of to slip. One thing Fender still hasn’t been able to lick though is the pesky cycle hum when trying to use the neck pickup independently from the bridge pickup. Still this bass has the growl, groove and Funk of the original 70’s model but it’s a little pricey.
